Galigan, Galigans

A rich castle-town ruled by Lampart.

Lampart instituted a custom by which he fought personally against any knight entering the town. If Lampart lost, the knight would receive the best lodging, but if the knight lost, the townspeople would get to cover the knight with filth. Gawaine’s son Guinglain came to the town and defeated Lampart.
